Product Overview
I first got a copy of the first book, "Starting Point, 1979-1996 (Japanese version)", while studying in Japan as an exchange student. I wanted to eventually be able to read it in the original. About 10 years later, I was indeed able to read the chapter on "Animation and Manga Movies". It was a pleasant surprise that my Japanese language ability had improved to the extent that I could already read such texts. I then translated the chapter for my class on Japanese Films. Not long after, I got a copy of this book in the original Japanese. It is indeed fun to just randomly flip a page and read insights from MiyazakiSAN.
